    Hey forgive any computer illiteracy I have:p

    I am running Windows Xp pro with hi-speed internet. I'm using a router and have zonealarm but have tried closing that and I don't know the first thing about the windows firewall. On my old computer I downloaded faster than most computers. Since getting my new one however my download speed tends to max out around 30 kb/s. There is no spyware(I have done multiple checks) and no viruses exist on it, I've looked at ports and can not figure out which port would be slowing down every single download. I've reconfigured my router and that solved nothing and I have closed all applications and restarted etc... Also It is not the location of where I am downloading from, i've downloaded stuff from Australia at 35 kb/s yet a friend sending me something over ICQ, MSN or AOL from 2 blocks away maxes at 25 kb/s.

    Also it's not the fact that im using IE, i've tried using dl accelerators and firefox, nothing helps.

    Plz help!
